Men’s Foursomes & Singles Matchplay
The draw for the Men’s Foursomes Matchplay has been made and has been posted on the Men’s Noticeboard, and will be posted on the website:
The preliminary round is due for completion by Monday April 25th. The ties for the first round proper must be completed by Monday May 9th.
Entries are now being taken for the Singles Matchplay. The closing date for entries is Tuesday May 3rd. To enter, place the entry fee (€7) in an envelope clearly marked “Singles Matchplay” with your name and contact number on it and place it in the Men’s Competition Box in the Bar.
The New Ross bandwagon rolled on with a very good win over Wexford in the Barton Cup at the weekend. New Ross completed a clean sweep of the home matches to seal the tie. Seamus Aldridge & Derek Ronan, Michael Cullen & Rory Hussey and Jim Byrne & Donal Hosey won on the 15th, 16th & 17th respectively. In Wexford, Michael Ryan & Pat Whelan were 1 up going down the 18th when called in and Paul McGrath & Brian StLedger lost out narrowly to a strong home pairing. The team, managed by James Roche & Brian Teague, play Rosslare in the next round.
There is a very busy week ahead for our teams. The JB Carr travel to Courtown on Thursday for their second round clash. On Saturday, the Provincial Towns take on Waterford and the All Ireland Fourball face St Helens. On Sunday, Bunclody are once again the opponents in the South Leinster whilst the Duggan Cup teams take on Mount Juliet. The very best of luck to all involved.
Condition of the Course – Please do your bit!
We had a better week weather-wise last week, however growth levels are still poor for this time of year and the course needs extra care and attention. Replace divots, repair pitch marks and rake the bunkers. The greens are still very soft and all approach shots that land on the green are making marks. Find your own pitchmark each and every time and repair it. Repair any other pitchmarks that you see whilst you’re at it! Make sure your playing partners do the same – every little helps! Please pick up any litter you come across on the course – don’t walk by it, it takes very little time an effort to pick it up and put it in the next bin.
New Ross hosts Mid Leinster Ladies Senior Cup Qualifiers on Sat & Sun May 7th & 8th
New Ross Golf Club is hosting the Mid Leinster District Ladies Senior Cup Qualifiers on 7th & 8th May. We are looking for ball spotters for this event. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Liz Bennett. We are also looking for a loan of two small pop up tents with no floor or gazebos for that weekend. Please contact Liz Bennett if you are able to help.
Restaurant is taking bookings for all types of occasions
